Early Intervention Program
Licensed Physical therapists and Occupational therapists work with children and their families with the goal to enhance a child’s overall motor and self help skills. Therapists evaluate current motor skills through formal assessment, clinical observation and parent report. As part of a comprehensive therapy plan, therapists provide intervention services that are based in play and incorporate your family’s daily activities.
The focus of therapy is to help children become more independent. Therapy facilitates a child’s large mobility movement (rolling, walking, sitting), small movements (using their hands, using tools and manipulating objects), and ability to interact with their environment. Specialized equipment may also be used to support a child’s development, as needed.
The intensity, frequency, duration and location of therapy varies according to the needs of each child. Location options include:
- Home Visits
- In-Clinic Appointments
- Kindering’s Stepping Stones Toddler Preschool Program
- Around the community (e.g., park, mall, etc.)(limited)
